IBU Clinic

In May 2012 Icebreakers Uganda opened the IBU CLINIC, the first LGBTIQ clinic in Uganda; it was due to widespread homophobia and the very unfriendly services that LGBTIQ people were getting from health service providers. This risked their lives because they had problems accessing LGBTIQ friendly health services.

We opened the ICEBREAKERS CLINIC to cater for sexual minority groups so as to avail accessible, free and friendly health services.
